From Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Everywhere, the Occupy Movement has earned its legitimate status as a global movement for the past three months. What are the possibilities for this movement and what can it achieve or inspire in turn? Where is its place in the history of the progressive movement in this country?
To reflect on these and other questions, The Nation and The New School held a panel discussion, "Occupy Everywhere: On the New Politics and Possibilities of the Movement Against Corporate Power," in New York on the November 10th. Our featured speakers included Oscar-winning filmmaker and author Michael Moore, journalist and best-selling author Naomi Klein, President and Executive Director of the Applied Research Center and publisher of ColorLines Rinku Sen, Occupy Wall Street organizer Patrick Bruner, and veteran journalist and author William Greider.
